Cormier-Jones off the card for UFC 200 due to Jon Jones' potential anti-doping violation

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The "biggest, baddest fight card ever assembled" has another interruption.

Former Oklahoma State wrestler and UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier was scheduled to fight Jon Jones this Saturday July 9 in Las Vegas before it was announced that Jon Jones apparently failed a drug test for performance enhancing substances.

This is the second time in the last three fights that Jones has failed a drug test.

Dana White pretty much sums it up.

Jones failed a test that was administered on June 16. The case is still being investigated but with only three days remaining, there was not sufficient time to complete the investigation.

Maybe this will come as a consolation to some.

The main even will now be the three-round bout between Mark Hunt and Brock Lesnar.
